BudgetSimple knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy very seriously. We expect that users will use BudgetSimple for personal purposes.
Information we collect
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and budget. We collect the following types of information from our customers.
Information you give to us.
When you register to use the Service, we ask you for the following information:
- Email address
When using the Service, you may also provide certain other personal information and content, such as categorized budget items, bank account details, or expense/income details. Unless you choose to share your budget, by default any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service is not available to the public, and is kept private within the Service. BudgetSimple is not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to disclose publicly on the Service should you choose to make your budget public. If you remove information that you make public through the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service. Bank account logins are not stored by BudgetSimple, but are instead stored with a trusted third party. These details are removed when you delete the bank account or your BudgetSimple account.
Information we collect when you use our Site and Services
We may collect information about the way you interact with our Site, Services, and content, including computer, browser and connection information, statistics on page views, downloads, traffic to and from our Site, IP address and standard web log information.
Also, you may send us biographical information, correspondence, testimonials, photos, blog comments, writings, customer satisfaction surveys or customer service communications.
How we use information
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service. In addition, we may also use the information we collect to:
- provide customer support you request;
- resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems;
- prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities and enforce our policies;
- measure and improve our Site and Services; and
- tell you about our Services, Service updates, targeted marketing and promotional offers based on your communication preferences.
How we share information
We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements (for example, a court order or subpoena) or in the good faith belief that disclosure is legally required, enforce our policies, establish or exercise our legal rights, or protect anyone’s rights, property or safety.
We may also share your personal information with:
- Service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as credit card processing, delivery services or bill collection).
- Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific Service).
Cookies and web beacons
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, aggregated category information, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain BudgetSimple Services.
Accessing and changing personal information
You can access and change your account information by visiting www.BudgetSimple.com, logging in with your BudgetSimple account information, and clicking on the “Manage Account” link at the top of the page. There, you can change your email address, password, and disable your account.
We may communicate with you at various times, with administrative emails and Service announcements, customer service responses, and promotional emails like special offers, newsletters and updates. You can choose to stop receiving promotional emails at any time by using the Unsubscribe option in the email. You may not opt out of receiving administrative messages or customer service responses.
We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the BudgetSimple and the Site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
